Roku Aims To Launch In UK And Canada In 2012

Roku is following Boxee in trying to go global, as internet TV operators of varying stripes compete for place in the living room. Roku says it will start retailing the UK and Canada from early 2012. That will go alongside what will have to be Roku's effort to find local content channel partners for the new markets. Candidates are likely to include Spotify, Netflix (NSDQ: NFLX), BBC iPlayer, ITV (LSE: ITV) Player, 4oD, Channel Five, Blinkbox and PlayJam. "Content can be free, ad supported or paid," Roky says. Roku's boxes now range from a $49.99 SD device to its $99.99 model.
